Metro: Last Light launch trailer shows that it’s not all fun and games in a nuclear apocalypse


Metro: Last Light is out now; here’s our Metro: Last Light review.

While you’d be forgiven for thinking that a nuclear apocalypse would be the start of global fun times – food can be cooked simply by laying it in the nearest irradiated puddle, fallout ash would allow you to demonstrate the power of your Dyson hoover to your friends and neighbours, queues at your local Sainsbury’s would be significantly shorter – it also means that mutated monsters want to kill you.

The launch trailer for 4A Games’ Metro: Last Light brings home the sobering reality of a nuclear wasteland. It’s just not very safe.

Well, those survivors do not look chirpy. Not chirpy at all.

Still, if there’s one silver lining we can take away from the video it’s that the game is available for purchase now and that your role in the game is essentially to make it safer for everyone else. You’re a glorified pest control lad doing your bit for the community.

I’ve still not had a chance to play Last Light but we’ve locked Steve in the gaming cage since Thursday and he should have his review ready for your perusal any day now. From what I’ve heard between his screams echoing through the PCGamesN air ducts, he’s liking it. A lot.

Rob certainly got on well with it during his hands-on. And that’s despite setting himself on fire.
